Mom's Read of the Week: The Favorite Child

In your spare time this week, take a look into Ellen Weber Libby’s fascinating theories on birth order and favoritism in her book The Favorite Child.

Synopsis: In this much-discussed new book, Dr. Libby explores why parents (either consciously or unconsciously) choose a favorite child, and what this designation can do to your child. The chapters offer insightful, interesting pieces of actual therapy sessions that help illustrate her theories and exemplify the personality traits that tend to define favored children. Dr. Libby also discusses families where parents have successfully made each child feel special, and the unmistakable benefits of this healthy emotional balance.

Why We Love It: This readable, well-written and organized book is not only important for those trying to fairly rear different children growing up in the same household, but for any adult trying to come to terms with their own place in the birth order–and their parents’ favor.

Price: $12
